Zaneta Boles – click to email

Zaneta Boles is a 20-year veteran educator who has spent her entire career working in the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools. As a native of Kansas City, her passion for education was birthed out of the influence of the educators in her family, primarily her mother. She chose to work in the inner city because she has always had a connection with the everyday highs and lows that urban life can present. This unique experience is what drives her mindset to serve others, as she deems it to be the greatest honor and privilege.

Zaneta has spent her career serving as a Classroom Teacher, an Instructional Coach  and as an Assistant Principal. Within our District, she has served on various cadres, particularly in the area of literacy. She was also a co-instructor for the Literacy Lab that supported teachers in their quest to learn more about literacy instruction. Zaneta is committed to collaborative learning that engages in students, staff, families and the community. A strong belief in family influence is evident in her day-to-day interactions. She is often seen interacting with families as if they were her own. She will often say that “If you have the support of the family, then you will likely have the support of the child”.

Zaneta holds a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She was named Star Teacher in 2008 while teaching at Caruthers Elementary and was recently chosen to be a part of the first cohort of the Leaders of Excellence Academy in our District. Zaneta is married, and  has one daughter.
